How about:

Star Wars-ify the Advent Set.

Take all the pieces from the current years Advent set and see who can make the best SW themed anything from it. This way it could be a yearly contest. Although, this year we have two Advent sets to choose from I prefer if it was always the Town version.

If we are going to have another large contest, then I think it needs to be original like all the other ones, not copy cats. If anyone is not sure, then please take a look at the contest section Smile

That being said I'd like to see a Holiday Contest. Yep I said it Star Wars vs. the Holidays like Star Wars vs. Steam Punk. Reindeer drive A-wings, Santa flying a custom Falcon, Elves building battle droids, the Menorah Fighter... You get the idea. Anyway Happy Holidays. Laughing

I love the Holiday idea! Very Happy

As for another contest, how about Star Wars Twilight Zone, where everything is the opposite of the real storyline. The Rebels are the bad guys, the Emperor is good, Luke is Darth's father, etc. Laughing

Ooh, I hope the one in the pipeline is the one I suggested a year or two back that's been on 'hold' pending the site's perpetually forthcoming redesign...

Hello there! The last time I logged on was to participate in the Steam Wars contest. Although that didn't go too well for me, I enjoyed it very much and I would love another good SW themed contest! So, I would like to share some ideas:

Castle Wars contest:
In the style of the Steam Wars contest, this is a contest to recreate iconic vehicles (or locations) from SW in the creative style of the new Castle sets! Make your builds somewhat plausible - things that hover could be on wagon wheels, things that fly could be attached to dragons, and things that are being accelerated by jet engines could be pulled by Trolls or horses. Be creative and we will see some great stuff like troll-pulled landspeeder or podracer wagons. Hereby, knights could be rebels or clones, skellies could be Battle Droids, orcs could be stormies, wizards could be jedi/sith, trolls could be rancors or other big animals, and dwarves could be Jawas or Ewoks or something.
Death Castle anyone? Smile

Super-Deformed Star Wars contest:
Build a super-deformed Star Wars vehicle or vessel in the style of Vader's TIE from the Death Star playset. Your entry has to be smaller than normal size (the size of usual Lego sets), but big enough to fit a minifig. That would be challenging!

UCS Star Wars Character contest:
In the style of the UCS General Grievous figure, build a statue of your favorite SW character!

So, what do you think?

I for one think it should be a base contest. Make a HQ/Base of some starwars faction. It could be in MINI form or Minfig scale. And preferably done with LEGO's.

Build your interpretation of what Ackbar's personal trap-evading starfighter would look like Wink

One of the first things that really grabbed my attention about FBTB so, so long ago, before I was even a member here, was the alternative 'B' wing competition...

An awesome concept and so were the results...

So I'd suggest the magna guard starfighter as a comparable set to do the same thing with.

Create a PCS style ship or vehicle (or base) from a single Lego Star Wars set.

Star Wars mosaic contest. Create a mosaic of a given size (20 x 20?) either in color or gray-scale.

Endor themed vignette contest. We seem to be lacking Endor sets in the official line, so let's make a few.


Some of the others sound pretty good as well.

Participation would be pretty tough this year since we are getting so close to the holidays. Hopefully the pillars of deep thought and wisdom that is our mod community are planning this great contest for the new year.

I think it'd be fun to have a contest where Star Wars characters go on vacation. Preferably (but not necessarily) outside of the Star Wars universe. Have a minimum and maximum photo number of 10 photos. Each photo would have a short caption of what happened on the vacation...like you're watching a slideshow of someones vacation.

Example:

Darth Vader goes to Disneyworld with Palpatine.

1st picture of the two of them haggling at the front using the force.
2nd pic of them impatiently pushing through the line at space mountain.
3rd pic of lunch, they are eating something Mickey shaped.
4th pic of them tearing up the "its a small world"

Those are just examples...but the possibilities are endless.

BTW - the last contest i tried was the alternate b wing contest, which was fun. i entered "darth gator"

Well sessional contests just make sense Razz
But I am so glad there is another contest, it's almost been a year since our last one.

As for ideas, I haven't thought of a theme, but I have always loved the Vignette style contests.

I think a cool contest would be where you recreate a character and their vehicle if they were on the other side, i.e. recreate Luke as a sith apprentice to Darth Ben or create Boba Fett as a respectable General.

I like Obi-wan's idea of a chibi star wars contest (although I call it poofy). Vehicles or starships would have to fit at least one minifigure. Sounds cool! i already have a few made..

There was "Idea for a future contest - original minifig scale podracers", but the topic appears to be lost.
